Because the VHS understands the mental and physical benefits of owning pets, the shelter offers adoptable animals free of charge to senior citizens. The Pets for Seniors program waives the adoption fee for those who qualify.
Senior adopters must still complete the required paperwork and it must be approved by an Adoption Counselor, as with any other adoption. The fee is waived if the following qualifications are met:
If the above requirements are not met, the adopter will be charged the regular adoption fee for the animal.
This program is made possible in part by the Grey Muzzle Organization, who sponsored 20 senior dog adoptions in 2018-2019! We are so grateful for Grey Muzzle's support. Click here to browse adoptable dogs.
